I have over 14 years of professional experience in the criminal justice field. I worked as a federal law enforcement officer (special agent) for the U.S. Department of Labor, the U.S. Department of Justice, and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Additionally, I have over five years of professional experience working in academia as a college/university professor. I have a B.A. in Mathematics, an M.A. in Intelligence and Security Studies, and a Ph.D. in Computational Linguistics. My areas of academic research/interest include forensic linguistics, machine learning, mathematical logical language and artificial intelligence, language pathology, criminology and brain (f)MRI.
I am fluent in English, Spanish and Arabic. My published work includes two academic journal articles, one edited book and four technical papers, one of which became the basis for wireless telecommunications law in the United States.
